    Just looking for opinions on this, I've had my nose in google doing some self-diagnosing (I'm sure we've all been there). So I'm looking at my FF cycle charts and I don't ovulate consistently. I know my cycles are irregular, always have been. In the past I've ov'd on CD - 16, 18, 14 and now 20. This is just the cycles that I actually tracked these things so I don't have extensive evidence but it's odd, no? Or is it my irregular periods throwing my ovulation off... kind of like which came first the chicken or the egg. Curious if any of you ladies have more knowledge on this, wondering if I need to see a fertility specialist or just a gyno to sort this out.

    I've had varied o dates, 12, 18, 21 and 10. I think it's normal. But then again I'm confused with my cycle right now so maybe it's not haha! Fx!

    It's ovulation that throws the period off. Women usually have the same length of luteal phase each cycle (post ov part of cycle) so your period will arrive that number of days after ovulation.
    I had a 13 day luteal phase and my ovulation was anywhere between cd 10 - cd 14 so my cycle ranged from 23 - 27 days.

    Even my luteal phase is inconsistent, between 12 - 14 days
